Don Lemon Roasts 'Hypocrite-In-Chief' Donald Trump Over Undocumented Workers Report

He says that she believes that Trump's comments may have emboldened a supervisor at the resort to verbally abusing workers, calling them "stupid illegal immigrants".

"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", Trump Organization spokeswoman Amanda Miller wrote in an email, without specifically addressing the article about Morales.

The 46-year-old native of Costa Rica, who was an employee of the golf course from 2010 to 2013, has since become a legal resident of the United States. Both said Trump was kind to them and gave them cash tips on occasion.

Trump's campaign was buoyed by his harsh stance on illegal immigration and promises of a border wall paid for by Mexico.

These unnamed supervisors took steps to help illegal workers evade detection and keep their jobs, the women said. "We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation", Morales told the New York Times. He knows we don't speak English, ' Ms. Morales said, 'Why wouldn't he figure it out?'

And the advocates celebrated Ms. Morales and Sandra Diaz, another woman who worked for the president's New Jersey golf course while an illegal immigrant, who also told her story to The New York Times.

Another former golf club worker who said she was undocumented said Mr Trump was ‘meticulous’ and once raged over an orange stain on his white collar which she said was his makeup

She said she is certain that her employers - perhaps even Trump - knew of her unlawful status all along.

She said she was not the only worker at the club who was in the country illegally.

Victorina Morales said she's not the only unauthorised immigrant employed at one of the president's properties, adding that she knows coming forward could mean she loses her job or gets deported.

"While working at Donald Trump's estate in Bedminster and interacting with the President and his immediate family, my clients and others were repeatedly subjected to abuse, called racial epithets and threatened with deportation", Anibal Romero, a lawyer representing Morales and Diaz, said in a statement to Yahoo News.

As president, Trump listed E-Verify among his immigration priorities and requested $23 million in his 2019 budget proposal to expand the program for mandatory nationwide use. "We call upon New Jersey's law enforcement community and federal authorities to investigate these allegations immediately".

'I ask myself, is it possible that this señor thinks we have papers? And though we shouldn't assign worth to undocumented immigrants because of their labor - their contributions to the United States are greater than the many ways that they enrich others - it's repulsive that Trump could privately acknowledge their work ethic but then also turn around and paint them as a drain on resources.
